There is always a complaint that the child / students dose not understand what is taught to them. So we try different methods of teaching and apply all the techniques possible to improve the teaching process. But practically, every kid / student understands as per his capacity and grasp. The ability to teach and the ability to learn / understand, both are two different issues. But when the understanding capacity of a student increases, it indirectly means that there is improvement in the way of teaching. Hence we should try to improve the memory, concentration and understanding capacity of every kid / student. It is not sufficient by improving the teaching techniques. We need to make efforts to improve the child's memory and concentration.
Yoga, adapted for pre-school children, develops body awareness, language, good listening skills, cooperation and powers of observation. It teaches pre-school children about nature, their environment and inspires their imaginations. It prepares them for breathing techniques used in yoga. They learn by playing, singing,
moving and imitating. This is an ideal time for children to begin a yoga practice. Yoga has great benefits for growing children and it is a lots of fun. At yoga classes for kids, children learn to stretch, breathe deeply, relax and concentrate and they teach children's yoga for peace, health, literacy and FUN.
